And finally.... MTG was called that one of our players, Mbeyu Akida, was selected for the national team. The team was expected in Nairobi for the first qualification match for the All African Games against Sudan. It would have been the first match of the national teams since 2006 when they had beaten Djibouti 8 - 0.
Last week the African Women’s Football Championship kicked off in South Africa. The opening game was a thrilling match between our neighbours, Tanzania – the Twiga Stars - and the home team, Banyana Banyana. Kenya’s women footballers had missed out on an opportunity to showcase their talent. Again.
July 2010 was an unforgettable month. Like June. It was all about the World Cup 2010! It was great. For Africa, for MTG. There were only winners.... Almost. The sad news came from our friends from the Kids League in Uganda who lost their former programme manager Abriga Siraj in the bomb blast in a cafe where 76 people died.
June was the month we have been looking forward to. The MTG United under 16 team went to Moshi for their trip abroad and the Football for Hope team traveled finally to South Africa. But on a larger scale it was of course the World Cup 2010 that was the main event. The first ever World Cup held in Africa! And in Kilifi we could feel that we were part of it. It was not just us, MTG, being in Johannesburg, but also the video screening at our league fields that brought the World Cup close to the people in Kilifi.
